may get back less then they originally invested. In the case of higher volatility

You agree that you understand that Britdaq is an information website, and is not
a regulated stock market, or even a market at all.
You understand that no actual share trading occurs on the Britdaq platform itself.
You understand that all Britdaq does is allow investors to indicate an intention
to find a match in various private companies, and assist them in executing a
private transaction thereafter.
Any individual who is in any doubt about any proposed investment or transaction
should consult an authorised person specialising in advising on investments of the
kind in question.
Gold Membership - Disclaimer
All transactions in unlisted securities will be carried out as Private Transactions
between buyer(s) and seller(s). No advice will be given as to the suitability of the
investment for you. If you have any doubt as to the suitability of this service, you
should consult an authorised financial adviser.
Unlisted securities are not traded on a Regulated Market or a Recognised Investment
Exchange. The shares are classified as Non-readily Realisable Investment. Transactions
in these shares may be infrequent, the price may fluctuate significantly, there is no
standard market price and shares may be illiquid, therefore difficult to buy or sell.
There may be a delay between Britdaq receiving your intention to match and the
completion of the arrangement of the trade. This is due to the requirement to
communicate with both buyer and seller.
When a match has been made, successful completion is subject to satisfactory
settlement of the trade. Whilst every effort is made to complete the matching
arrangement, Britdaq shall not be responsible nor liable if either buyer or
seller fails to complete the transaction.
IMPORTANT - Britdaq reserves the right to terminate Gold Membership if,
after they have confirmed their agreement to trade with another member, members fail to
complete the trade for any reason.
Sellers must return the share transfer form correctly completed. If we also require a share certificate you will be informed.
Buyers must pay the purchase amount along with Stamp Duty if appropriate.
Both Buyer and Seller are also required to pay the Britdaq Arrangement Fee before the trade can complete.
An arrangement fee of 2% of the consideration of each transfer, subject to a minimum
fee of £49.00 will be payable for each transfer. Purchases above £1,000
may be subject to 0.5% Stamp Duty. These charges and taxes may change and you will be
notified of any changes before you confirm your intention to match.
If you decide to use Britdaq to conduct this service, you will have to register
as a Gold Member of Britdaq. Since unlisted securities are Non-Readily Realisable
Investments, if you are a buyer you confirm that you have sufficient knowledge and
experience and that your financial circumstances permit you to buy unlisted securities.
Please note that the value of your investments, and any income you receive, may fall
and you may receive less than, or none of, the money you invested. Past performance is
not necessarily a guide to future performance and should not be relied on. As unlisted
securities are higher volatility investments these may be subject to large or sudden
falls in value.
Britdaq is not a specialist tax adviser and you should seek specialist
advice regarding your personal tax situation and the consequences any investment
decisions may have upon your personal circumstances.
